The Weirdos: It Means Nothing b/w We Got the Neutron Bomb


This pair of demos includes the biting rarity, "It Means Nothing" and the first version of a track that defined American punk of the Left Coast variety, "We Got the Neutron Bomb".

  2. "We Got The Neutron Bomb"/"Solitary Confinement" gets my vote as the best U.S. punk single ever.

    I slightly prefer "Solitary Confinement" to "Neutron Bomb" but I agree that it is the best US punk single with maybe the first Dils (I Hate the Rich/You're not blank)

  4. I've heard the Dils record, and the recording on the Weirdos single just blows everything from that time period away. The sound is so loud and full.

    Lovin' all this Weirdos stuff by the way, Jeffen!

  5. I've been tryign to map out the competition for best US punk single and this is still in the lead, The Dils were amazing (all budgets considered) and the Avengers single is incredible (though I prefer the 12" with "American in Me") X seem more of album band and Black Flag D.O.A. etc fall into the hardcore era...Tough call

    Glad people are loving The Weirdos, last post is tomorrow but it's a good 'un.

  6. Nothing against the Weirdo's finest but I'm going to have to go with "I Got A Right" by Iggy & The Stooges.

  7. I FINALLY FOUND A GOOD LIVE VERSION OF "LIFE OF CRIME." IT'S ON YOUTUBE FROM A CONCERT AT THE COACH HOUSE. I ALSO FINALLY FIGURED OUT HOW TO CAPTURE THE AUDIO FROM YOUTUBE. ANOTHER GREAT VIDEO ON YOUTUBE IS A LIVE VERSION OF "FAR BEHIND" BY SOCIAL DISTORTION. TAKE IT EZ, PAT

    There is something pre-eminent about the Stooges song.
